New tool from SkyCiv!

SkyCiv Base Plate – Access easy to use base plate design software that is mobile friendly!

The SkyCiv Mobile app is an all-in-one structural engineering toolbox.

Access structural engineering tools, including a Beam Calculator, Section Database including the AISC library, SkyCiv Model Viewer, Load Generator, Base Plate Design Tool and Structural Unit Converter. The app allows you to run quick and easy design calculations, as well as stay connected to your SkyCiv files and models.

The beam calculator is a fast and easy beam analysis tool where you can calculate the reactions, bending moment diagrams, shear force diagrams, deflection and stresses in seconds! Run calculations on a variety of shapes and materials such as wood, concrete or steel beams.
The beam calculator is connected to SkyCiv’s powerful, commercial Finite Element Method (FEA) software to provide quick and accurate results. The calculator is also connected to our Section Database so you can easily search and import common shapes. Review your deflection, shear force and bending diagrams in a concise form and even export a PDF analysis report to send to colleagues or clients.

The SkyCiv beam calculator is now even more powerful with features including adding self-weight, hinges, angled point loads and spring supports to your model. You can also run integrated design checks and optimize your beam model using AISC, AS, EN, BS and many more design codes.

Quickly check the exact properties of an I beam with the section database. The database includes tables from the AISC, AISI, NDS, AS 4100, CISC, European, British and Chinese libraries with more than 10,000 shapes in concrete, wood, steel or plastic. Use our quick search functionality or browse through our library to find the shape you need.

SkyCiv’s Wind and Snow Load Calculator allows you to get wind speed by location based on ASCE 7-10, EN 1991, NBCC 2015 and AS 1170. The calculator is designed to help engineers determine their wind design speeds, snow pressures and topographic factors for specific site locations. With an interactive Google Map to find your exact location and clear graphics and results, you can now get your design loads in seconds!

Access the powerful SkyCiv base plate design tool, complete with powerful 3D rendering. Model the anchors, welds, stiffeners as well as the actual base plate and concrete supports of your base plate design with your fingertips. With quick design calculations, the software will give you a clear pass or fail for a range of design standards including American, European and Australian Standards. With comprehensive and clear step-by-step reporting, you'll also understand exactly what the software is doing.

The SkyCiv app also includes a model viewer, allowing engineers to review, share and even run structural analysis on their models right from their mobile devices!

Finally, the app also includes an engineering unit converter. This helps engineers convert common units for length, mass, force, loads, density, pressure and more.

Options and settings have also been added to make it even more convenient for engineers to access these tools. SkyCiv is designed to be a convenient structural app for all engineers. Set your preferred section database from AISC to European standards or configure the unit system to metric or imperial measurements. With auto launch settings quickly access the tools you need whether you are a student calculating the bending moment of a steel beam with the beam calculator or a professional performing design and structural analysis on your 3D model.
